7 Train to Vernon Blvd/Jackson Avenue
On my way to the Slovak-Czech Variety Store last week, I discovered a new Asian fusion restaurant right next door called Bany.
With the many luxury high-rise buildings that are sprouting like weeds, this side of town is also flourishing with new restaurants. Bany looks like a good one to try--the interior is modern and the menu boasts a variety of Asian specialties such as seafood, duck, sushi and sashimi. The prices are inexpensive to moderate and are comparable to its LIC restaurant neighbors. A sampling of Bany's menu is below:
Indian Pancake - Malaysia Indian pancake, served with chicken curry sauce...$3.50
Bany Summer Roll - Fresh mixed greens in a crispy roll with plum sauce on the side...$5
Rock Shrimp - Served with spicy mayo sauce...$8
Caterpillar - Crunchy spicy tuna inside, topped with avocado and spicy mayo...$8
Spicy Bad Girl - Spicy salmon, spicy tuna, spicy yellowtail, basil, topped with shrimp, avocado and jalapeno...$12
Fancy Dragon - Shrimp tempura, cucumber, caviar and eel topped with avocado and mango...$11
Mango Chicken or Jumbo Shrimp - Tropical mango, bell pepper, onion, jicama with mango chili sauce...$15-$17
Atlantic Ocean - Jumbo shrimp, scallops, fish, bell pepper, sweet beans, asparagus and onions in a butter cream sauce...$19
Duck Curry - 1/2 boneless duck, eggplant, potato, bell pepper and basil leaf...$17
Lunch specials are also available and include Bento boxes, stir-fry and sushi bar options.
